Red White and Blue Margarita

Why we love this drink-

  • It contains strawberry, coconut, and blue colored lime margarita layers. Each layer is a different flavored margarita- which layer is your favorite flavor?
  • The lime margarita layer is colored with blue curacao liqueur, which gives that layer a super smooth taste, but great blue color.
  • While this recipe makes the perfect 4th of July margaritas, you can enjoy them any time of year if you are patriotic enough.

Substitutions & Tips:

  • Instead of agave nectar, you can use simple syrup or other sweetener.
  • If any layer is too thin, add extra ice, or thin out with just a bit of extra liquid. To get a good separation of colors, you do want this drink to be a thicker slushy consistency.
  • ​You want a powerful blender for perfectly blended margaritas. We love our Ninja for the smoothest drinks!
